The Man Belonged In A Strait Jacket

Blogs 4 Brownback on Zappa:

The man belonged in a strait jacket. Wherever he is now, I’m sure it’s hot and I don’t want to go there. He was one of the deviant perverts who subsumed American culture in the 1960s. His music was horrible and weird, and his viewpoints were, too. We should exhume his body and burn it in a dumpster. It’s the least we can do for him, after all he did to us.

And who the fuck is Brownback? Oh, here he is.

    This demonstrates that however bad American politics seems now there is potential for it to get even worse. Isn’t that amazing?

    A family-friendly website? I nearly laughed my ass off, Barry. Never read so much hateful crud in some time. One can always depend on religious conservatives to have an extremely narrow-minded world view and sneer at anything or anyone whose views differ from their own. “Magdalena” from Just Another Band From L.A. = FZ supported incest. That’s just stupid, isn’t it? Using Brownback’s logic, “Alien Orifice” from FZ Meets The Mothers Of Prevention = FZ supported anal sex/fellatio with extra-terrestrials. Phew! Where do they grow these folks?

    Senator Sam B. chickened out:
    “October 21, 2007
    Dear Friends,
    On Friday, at the beautiful Kansas State Capitol in Topeka, I announced that I am ending my bid for the presidency.
    While I am saddened to leave the race, I can’t tell you how grateful and blessed I feel to have been a part of it. To think that the son of a farmer from Parker, Kansas (population 250) could run for the highest office of this great land tells you about the endless opportunities in America.
    And I can’t thank you enough for being a part of it.”
    Man, I am so relieved!

  4. Tony Z says:

    I don’t think he chickened out, I think it was more along the lines of priced out.
    Along with debated out, rejected out and laughed out.
    And thank jeebus he did. Now we Americans only have to worry about Thompson, Giuliani, Clinton, Romney, Huckabee, McCain…

    Vegetable lust? VEGETABLE LUST? Shame the fucking idiot hadn’t heard ‘Stevie’s Spanking’ as well.
    The “Oh, won’t someone please think of the children” defence doesn’t work that well in a discussion that starts off on the topic of desecrating the bodies of pople whose views you don’t happen to agree with, does it?

  6. Harmless Ted says:

    They are just pathetic hypocrites! Dumb all over… and maybe a little ugly on the side!

    Brownback browned-out on the bus. Big stinky one. THAT’s why he bowed out.
    That, and he’s moronic wanna be fascist fuck.
    Now, let[‘s forget this tool and turn on some ZAPPA!!!

    Uh oh, Zappa and his moronic fans have risen from the grave…
    [Ed Note:...Why do liberals always use foul language?]
    Frank Zappa was a pervert and a weirdo who got exactly what he deserved. Anyone who doubts his depravity has to defend the lyrics to the album “Absolutely Free,” in which he advocates child molestation and vegetable lust…
    [Ed Note: Bad grammar, foul language and tourettes syndrome: the hallmarks of a Frank Zappa fan.]
    Zappa worked for another boss too, Zutbof. His boss’s name was SATAN.
    Gandhi is burning in Hell too, now…
    If Zappa’s in hell, I wonder what he said to Jerry Falwell when he showed up.
    I am confident that my sins are far less mortal than yours, fornicator.
    I think we should dig zappa corpse up and piss on it!
    >Why the heck are you concentrating on a guy thats been dead for 13 years when you are supposedly trying to get some one elected.
    Where the heck is your focus and priorities retard!?!??
    [Ed Note: Watch that potty mouth, wanker. This is a family friendly site. Of the 450 well-researched and objective articles on this site, only one is about deadie Frank Zappa. So take a chill pill, d00d.]What strange people you American religious types are. Amusing, too, in your own little way.

    Whatever, Kevin. What Third-World filth-hole are you from?The BIG problem comes when blind faith people try to destroy our Constitution by taking away rights given to us by our framers. Here are some quotes the framers made about religion and our country, you can fact check them if you’d like:
    “The United States is in no sense founded on the Christian doctrine.”~George Washington
    “It does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.”~ Thomas Jefferson
    “I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish church, by the Roman church, by the Greek church, by the Turkish church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my church.”~ Thomas Paine
    “I do not find in orthodox Christianity one redeeming feature.”~ Thomas Jefferson
    “The Bible is not my book, and Christianity is not my religion. I could never give assent to the long, complicated statements of Christian dogma.”~ Abraham Lincoln<
    This is a Christian nation. Always has been, always will be. Don’t like it? Take your distorting, out-of-context quote book and move to Sweden. Or Syria.
    [Ed Note: How about you and your foul-mouthed treefrogs knock of using the f-word on this family-friendly site? Pretty please?]
    Wishing that someone you’ve never met and who has had no direct influence on your life should burn in hell is a wonderfully Christian thing to do, isn’t it?
    [Ed Note: ... But if you want to dream of having gay relations with Frank Zappa, go ahead, sinner.]
    I want to thank you for posting the video of Zappa on crossfire! I knew nothing about him. After watching the video clip, I am now a true Zappa fan! Thank you so much! I can’t wait to start listening to his music! I love the way you take that ridiculous opposing point of view to help solidify and recrute the Zappa fan base.
    Pure genius! What more can I say! Thank you so much!
    PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS GENTLEMEN,
    LET’S MEET AT ZAPPA’S GRAVE WHERE I SHALL GIVE YOU A SHOVEL SO YOU CAN EXHUME AND BURN THE BODY, LIKE YOU WANTED IT TO. OF COURSE I WILL FILM THIS AND PUT IT ON YOUTUBE FOR YOUR GLORY AND THE WHOLE WORLD TO SEE. YOU CAN ALSO EXPLAIN WHAT YOU ARE DOING TO THE FREE POLICE ESCORT THAT I WILL PROVIDE TO YOU, YOU CAN TELL THEM THAT YOU DID THIS ON A MISSION FROM GOD, THEY WILL RESPECT THAT,YOU BET. DOING THIS YOU WILL TRULY PROVE THAT YOU ARE NOT A WEIRD HIPPIE BUT A LAW ABIDING GOD FEARING CITIZEN.
    This site is an outlandish attempt at a joke, right? Because I’m certain no-one who really believed the stuff in the original post would know how to use a computer. Or have time to tear themselves away from their sister and/or right wing propaganda studies to post it…
    Sinful music encouraging lewdness and inappropriate gyrations is nothing to boast of, particularly when the lyrics consist of rank perversion.
    The first toasters were guesswork, divinely inspired guesswork.

  9. gnarlyartly says:

    Well, I wasted a bunch of time and read a lot of the FZ posts- pretty ridiculous. The blogger did encourage us evil Zappa fans to open our minds and read the rest of the blog. So I did:
    (here’s a bit from today, I think)
    “If nothing else, a nationwide law should require all of those under 18 to wear clothing at all times. Think about it. That alone would reduce, if not eliminate, extra-marital teen pregnancies, a nationwide scourge.”
    Excuse me, I’ve got to go clean the coffee off my monitor.

  10. Birdman! says:

    I first visited the Blogs for Brownback a couple of days ago after reading an article about whether or not they are parody. Some of these blogs sound suspiciously like me in faux-televangelist mode, or a new variant on Steve Colbert’s schtick. React with caution.

  12. Frank B. says:

    Sorry, i’ve forgotten, did Frank knew this religious fanatic? This Song “Amnerica” warned in advance…
    This is the new AM-NERIKA now!
    (AMNESIA/AMERIKA–Better, somehow)
    What cannot be fixed by a favor or bribe,
    Should be dead or forgotten–it must not survive!
    Those dreadful CREATIVES!
    Those up-rising NATIVES!
    They make us remember; They cause us such grief!
    My HOLY DISEASE is the only relief!
    I looked into the Bible,
    Yes! And so, I’m not liable
    for guilt to apply!
    Those dreadful CREATIVES have all got to die!

    Great summary, giantalbinopenguin. I think you boiled that thread down to it’s essence. That was a lovely trip down memory lane.
    Now try taking a crack at the Anime Encourages Murder thread. That one just goes on and on and on….

  17. Kevpod says:

    Let us simply imagine the song(s) Frank might have written to celebrate Mr. Brownback.

  18. Jamez says:

    ‘Would-be President From Hell’,'Sieg Heil America’, ‘Dumbo Runs For Office’,'Anally Retentive’ or ‘Browned Out’ would be songs Frank would write about this chump!

  19. scott says:

    Frank warned us about this shit a generation ago, and I believed him.
    It gives me no comfort.

  20. Frank B. says:

    LET’S MEET AT ZAPPA’S GRAVE WHERE I SHALL GIVE YOU A SHOVEL SO YOU CAN EXHUME AND BURN THE BODY sounds like a good friend of adolf hitler.
    What will Gail Zappa do now? Will she go to the lawyers? I hope so in behalf of Frank and all of us Fans. This is a fanatic jerk.

  21. Kevpod says:

    Let Brownbrain be in his pit of ignorance and misery.

  22. bernard says:

    I sincerely hope ( and believe) that Gail Z made all necessary efforts to avoid having a FZ grave. It would have attracted serious people & weirdos alike. You never know what will happen when you, as a ( new)widow, agree with a FZ grave.
    By the way I really don’t know what happened after FZ died. Did she ordered to burn all his personal ( unimportant) belongings, as C. De Gaulle’s widow did the very same day?
    Good to see that his music happens to be his legacy.

    Oh god its him… I don’t suppose you’ll answer, but Psycheout, you’re not really real are you?

    Check him on YouTube – if you have an impact-resistant computer.
    A real piece of fucking work, & no mistake.
    Gone & soon to be forgotten … kind of sad, really.
    What a JUICY name on that boy!
    Seem to recall seeing Mr. Brownback advocating “preemptive” use of nuclear weapons against Iran.
    “Thou shalt not kill” seems to have a heathen-opting-out-clause with these folks.
    Ah, Compassionate Conservatism!

  25. Rick Wood says:

    Blogs for Brownback is a very entertaining spoof site. Check out the “B4B” store over on the right, or some of the links like “cults” and “essentials”.

    I guess I’ve been playing the fool.

    Wait a minute. This has a familiar ring to it:
    “His music was horrible and weird, and his viewpoints were, too. We should exhume his body and burn it in a dumpster.”
    For me, it immediately brought to mind this:
    “Even his funeral was illegal. He was queer in the deepest way. His body should have been burned in a trash bin.”
    That’s from Hunter S. Thompson’s eulogy for Richard Nixon. Is this guy trying to be the born-again Bible-thumping answer to HST? Because, if so, it’s the funniest thing I’ve seen in a dog’s age.

  33. MattChu says:

    Ummm…it’s art, you maroon. One of a kind, and the best of it’s kind. And have fun looking for Frank’s grave. He doesn’t have one.

  34. MattChu says:

    Frankly speaking, Frank was a conservative. He plainly states that in a video interview found on yU-toob. He was a true patriot, loved America and believed in freedom and the law of the land. Thusly it’s pretty obvious that either Brownbeak knows nothing of Frank, or he’s a complete phony. Okay, so the answer is probably both.

  35. Hank Peters says:

    I thought Frank did have a grave, but it was just unmarked.

  36. MattChu says:

    From what I know of, our beloved Frank is not buried.

  37. urbangraffito says:

    How easy it is to criticize the deceased (they cannot answer back). Just goes to show how feeble Brownback actually is on a mental level — picking a fight with a dead man. What’s next, little children, old ladies? Bullies like Brownback should just be ignored. The only statue that’ll ever be erected of him will be made of mashed potatoes with lots of lumpy gravy mixed in (sorry, couldn’t help but throw that last part in).

  38. Kevpod says:

    Hey Matt – let’s start a Zappa Fans for Brownback site! That guy’s the best thing since Jim & Tammy in terms of providing material.
    The YouTube clip is most interesting for its view of that Lofton dude’s SPECTACULAR comb-over.

  39. jane23 says:

    it is my belief that zappa does have a tombstone at his grave
    it simply states his date of birth
    his date of death
    and the inscription:
    An American Composer.

  40. Frank B. says:

    If you don’t know the grave, here is a link…

    Genuine respect for FZ family.

  43. Paul Sempschi says:

    the man’s just a shit, that’s all. I say it’s best to dismiss him as a nutcase just as he dismisses us as perverts. Then again Edmund Burke sez: “the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” So I guess we’re stuck, eh?

  44. urbangraffito says:

    The worse thing for any of us to do is give this bozo more attention than he deserves. For attention is what he seeks. He is not evil, he’s just plain foolish. I, for one, am not going to give him another thought.

  45. MattChu says:

    WHAT?
    Woah! Hello, Houston? We just had an unidentified craft landing, apparently from Mars. Can you get over here immediately to make sure everyone’s okay? Thanks.
    Ahem! Now back to the subject matter, I would like to question the validity behind this supposed photo of Frank’s unmarked grave. Last I knew of, Frank was resting in a mausoleum. Now he’s buried in an unmarked grave? If that’s true, to me, it’s more evidence of the estate being mishandled. From the very outset, it seemed to me that no one had any control. As evident in Civilization III; SFX recordings that were creatively on par with Eddie VH dropping coins through piano strings; a burning cigarette propped on its butt end of the Steinway while Eddie’s plooking Valerie with that stupid look on his face.
    On this subject of the estate being mishandled, does anyone remember which guitar Dweezil auctioned off so he could buy some car speakers? Was it the Telecaster Frank played on Zoot Allures? Or was it the singed Hendrix Strat? My memory has conflicting details.
    Anyway, don’t get me wrong, I’m glad ZPZ has enshrined Frank’s music. I’m glad the ZFT still resurrects old recordings. But I just have to scratch my head sometimes.
    Thanks for listening.

  47. MattChu says:

    Sorry. I’m just a bitter old man.
    It’s been awhile since I watched that piece from Crossfire. I remember being a bit disappointed with Frank’s ability to challenge the issue. Frank was right though, that guy John Lofton was an A-hole. He was in no way familiar with who Frank’s was. And from what I remember he was very condescending when speaking about Frank’s music. They must have played some spectacular examples for him prior to going on the set.

    i offered him a wager of $20 that brownie won’t pull more than 0.5% nationally…. amusing in light of brownie’s stance against gambling of any and all sorts. let’s see if sisyphus catches it as a joke though or takes me serious…. read on from response #381!
